Review by Troy on Oct. 25, 2007
This is one of the best all mountain skis out there. It has a nice easy flex that doesn't build up too much power, but makes it easy to ski all day long. Its fairly stable at speed on the groomers, I noticed a little vibration on its top end, but not much. This ski is custom built for someone that likes to smear down the mountian at a good clip.
At 78mm its not really as wide as some of its competitors. I had a couple qualms about it's edge hold. It does reasonably well on the hardpack, but the bar for edge hold on a wide ski is being set almost impossibly high now. Some might find the ski to soft, its not capable of building up the kind of power that Volkl's AC40 or Fischer's AMC 79 are.
If you want to go for something with more power and edge hold go with either the Volkl AC40 or Fischer's AMC 79. If you need something wider, but you like the way the Recon feels, go with K2's Apache Outlaw, its just a wider version of the Recon.

One of my favorite front side skis.
